HTTP 500 errors - Missing expression of encoding in XML header

If your SWORD Deposit requests are producing HTTP 500, please check that the XML in your initial metadata deposit correctly specifies the encoding.

If you use: 

Code Block
<?xml version="1.0"?>

DSpace will default to UTF-32.

So to successfully deposit an XML in UTF-8, make sure you use:

Code Block
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
